I joined Morecrofts in 2008 after studying for my LLB and LPC at Liverpool John Moore’s University. I qualified as a solicitor in 2013 and specialise in all aspects of Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence and Education law.
My work is very varied and includes claims for injuries suffered by those as a result of: – Road Traffic Accidents, Accidents at work; slips and trips; dog bites; Accidents caused by Animals; Criminal Injuries (including those on behalf of sexual or physical abuse survivors); Fatal Accidents on behalf of dependents; Historic Abuse; Breach of Confidence; Nursing Home Negligence; Social Services Negligence; Clinical Negligence and Stress At Work.
I continue to have increasing success with more complex and higher value claims. I really enjoy my job and I am particularly proud of the trusting relationship I am able to build with all of my clients.
With regards to Education work, I have many successes representing parents in Admissions and Exclusion Appeals. I also help children with Special Educational Needs get the support they need at school by assisting their parents with the Education and Health Care Plan process. I further assist older students who have more general disputes with their College or University.
I am a member of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) and I regularly attend events held by the MJLD (Merseyside Junior Lawyers Division) and WLD (Women Lawyers Division) of the Law Society.
Outside of work I am a member of a tap dancing club and take part in annual shows.
